Tab stack tiling, on demand plugins in tabs, more mouse gestures, better import and a more snappy UI



  • Hmm, they are not duplicated anymore. Maybe a restart of the browser helped. It might have been some one-time, hard to replicate, minor happening.

    PLUS, as a labour saver, we would very much benefit from a dedicated Button to directly open the Full-Window Bookmarks Manager.

    I started a thread on this in the forum. I suggested a button on the bookmark panel next to the editing buttons. I assume it would not be difficult.



  • There is a problem with stacked tabs context menu using multiple screens. Menu is shown only on my main screen, athought I have been using second second screen. Also it is cut due to the fact the top edge of the main screen is not detected.

    Yes, it should be easy.

    Two nights ago, I converted a FireFox extension for a button which had another function, into one which would open the FireFox Bookmarks Manager.

    Only ONE line of code had to be changed, because the desired function already existed in the main program (all I had to do was call it), and I would estimate that Vivaldi's internal architecture cannot be all that different in general organization.

    BUT, in order to be a labour saver, the button needs to be located somewhere in the main UI window, not inside of a sidebar or a menu, nor inside of another tab or window.

    Right now, I can reach the Full-Window Bookmarks Manager of Vivaldi with TWO clicks (one to open a new tab, second to click the button inside of the speed dial screen), and I am asking that it be reduced to ONE click, by copying that button into the main UI.

    Anyway, I will read your thread in the Vivaldi forum, and may repeat this post over there, for better exposure.~~

    I always have my bookmark panel open so in my case it would be one click to the bookmark manager. Actually putting the button in a few places would not hurt at all.

    Not much coding would be involved to do that, based upon what I said earlier.

    BTW, I'm a dyed-in-the-wool non-sidebar panel user. 😉

    I use folders on the BM Bar instead.

    My Windoze taskbar has been on the left hand side since the last millennium, though.

    My 1280x1024 screen fits this stuff well.

    Oh, and where is that forum thread of yours ?

    I see your comments in some others, but that's all.

    Can we look at a user's post history here somehow ?

    I won't hold that against you 🙂

    https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/all/1935-alternate-method-to-get-to-the-bookmark-manager

    I could see all my posts. I didn't check if I can see about viewing all of other's posts.



  • EDIT: When clearing %vivaldi%\Profile\Default\Local App Settings\ the mouse gestures work again.

    Thanks.

    I have added a post to that thread.

    I didn't look far enough back the first time, I guess.



  • Pity that it is not possible to embed images in the comments. Any chance it will be possible?? 🙂



  • ~
    Only a few minutes ago, I learned how to do that in the Vivaldi Forum.

    Pretty slick !

    And here's my first post of an embedded image there :

    https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/vivaldi-browser/2281-bring-back-native-window-frame?start=20

    It's a screenshot of my vision for Vivaldi's UI, if enough flexibility is added.



  • This does not seem intuitive or possible to upload an image and embed it in a post forum in one go. What path have you went through to embed the screenshot?


  • Moderator

    In the forums, after you "add file" in the attachment dialog, you use the "insert" option. As for the blog, I don't see how one would add an image here.

    There was a button called 'Attachments' in the post composing form, IIRC.

    And yes, the 'Insert' step is crucial.

    However, that still does not help you here in the blog, which was your original question, right ?



  • I'm amazed about the pace of the development. I used the old Opera for years and didn't want to change after Opera implemented Blink. The only thing I really missed was the tab stacking but I stuck to it.
    I found Vivaldi and use it sporadically and was very pleased to see the tab stacking. And now I notice how many really new features you implement with this tremendous speed. Tab stack tiling is something useful and I certainly will use it in the future.
    If I could use extensions, I just need uBlock or uMatrix, I would take Vivaldi as my main browser. The Opera team is unfortunately not able to develop new features in an acceptable time frame.
    Keep the good work up and the first stable version will be awesome!



  • Feature request: Insert text from saved note.

    If I Right click in a text area I want to select a saved notes and insert it to the area.

    Anyone agree with me? 😃



  • Yeah. I can see that they are neither drag-and-droppable nor there is a context menu entry. It would be useful to have both possibilities (as it was in TheRealOpera).



  • @kniddl:

    You do not even have to stack tabs to tile them! These are two seperate functions.
    Just select any tabs holding Ctrl and choose tile option from the tab's context menu! 🙂



  • Yes, it works. Thank you. I think it was recently added, as I do not recall it being there even a week ago… But I might have missed it.
